Atrium Studio School

Extended Thinking

This is our Core Provision for Gifted and Talented students at South Dartmoor.  Selected students are timetabled in Extended Thinking in Years 8-11 as part of their core and compulsory curriculum provision.  Students are trained in critical thinking and ethical research as an enhanced programme of study.

South Dartmoor Community College is a member of NACE - the National Association for Able Children in Education.  We will be working to further develop links with this organisation over the next academic year to strengthen further our outstanding provision for High Performing students.  The NACE website can be found at:
